My oil light came on. I know I need an oil change but what worries me is the 15% beside it. What does that mean?
My car has 5000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi, thanks for writing in. I’d be happy to help. This is telling you that your car has 15% life on the oil left, before it is recommended to change it. Make sure the person that changes the oil and filter resets the oil change indicator back to 100%. Here at YourMechanic, we can have a technician come to your home or office to change your oil for you.
